ROSE BAKED DONUTS W/ SUPERFOOD + DARK CHOCOLATE GLAZE ( VEGAN)
As a believer in superfoods, I try and use every opportunity as a chance to get the goods in. This time I used Nutra Organics Superfood latte powders. With their vibrant colors and sweet flavors, they are the perfect additions to a sweet treat.
AN HERBED HEIRLOOM TOMATO + STONEFRUIT GALETTE W/ HOMEMADE RICOTTA
When I look at this slab of baked heirloom tomatoes and stonefruit the words "Spring is Coming" quickly rings silently in my mind. Yes, we still may have roughly six weeks til that day, but in Los Angeles the warm days and blooming trees say otherwise.
AN ALL HALLOWS EVE DINNER W/ BUTTERNUT SQUASH AND THYME SOUP WITH MASA DUMPLINGS
A little witch once told me that to brew the perfect potion, one must have all the finest ingredients. Advice that truly goes for almost anything in life. To create the perfect meal, the perfect atmosphere.. the perfect moment in time... you must piece it together with simply the best.
MAKING A MAGAZINE : BEHIND THE SCENES OF MAKING ISSUE I
Making a magazine was an unknown world to me. I had never even opened indesign before starting this issue - let alone laid out a full magazine from start to finish. So you can imagine that this first issue was filled with 'firsts'. While I wish I could say it was a piece of cake - even tho many pieces of cake were eaten in the making of this magazine-- It was one of the hardest things I have created yet to date.
Rose + Strawberry Sangria
What is better in summer than Sangria? I'm always looking for ways to mix it up and create new inventive drinks. Sangria being one of my classic - easy , go -to drinks, I tend to make it often. Especially when a group is involved. This time, I wanted to combine sangria, with two of my favorite components-- strawberry and rose. If you have been following us, you know that whenever there is an opportunity to use rose, I usually will take it and this is one of those moments.
Lemonade is kinda one of the best - refreshing drinks, ever created. There is literally an endless array of options when it comes to spicing it up as well, and this time -- lemongrass was the obvious choice. It's super simple and add's a bit of a kick to the already delicious drink. If you choose to squeeze your own, or buy a freshly squeezed carton- there is no way to go wrong. Make sure to decorate it and use some extra fresh lemongrass as stirs!
